Question Producing associated gene lists.......?

Does anyone know the best way to produce a list of genes (official gene ID preferably) that have the same associated function.

for example i want to get a comprehensive list of official gene IDs for genes known to be cytokines. (in human)

I assume I would need to find a broad GO-term that would include all cytokines, but I don't know how to produce a list which includes the official gene ID only.

many thanks

Get these files : gene2go and gene_info from NCBI

You can use these commands from command line...
wget -nc
wget -nc

Uncompress them using "gzip -d filename.gz".

gene2go has the id to goterm
gene_info has the id to gene name.

NCBI could be helpful. Enter "gene" next to the search bar and search "cytokine", narrow down your query by clicking on "Homo sapiens"/ whatever species you're using in the sidebar after completing your search. From there you can click on the genes of interest and create a txt file with the information you want to download. Is this helpful at all/what you were looking for?

EDIT: Ah, previous poster beat me to the punch .

Search for cytokine at: You should be able to download a tab delimited list from the results.
